Introduction

Looking at the lovely photos in my purse, I will always recall, in retrospect, my innocent childhood. They are the photos taken at different ages of me and there are also photos of my friends and family. I enjoy looking at them when I feel miserable or tired. They will make me more energetic towards my work. I am Vivian and fourteen years old. I live in Jardin's Lookout with my parents and my elder brother. I was born in Hong Kong. I am a girl who is always very happy and just like a kid who never grows up. I like dancing and swimming a lot! I also play piano. I am now in grade 4 and I am going to have the grade 5 piano examination next year. ...read more.

Middle

However, after I had the examination of grade one, I found it very difficult to dance and I gave up ballet. My favorite photo is the one taken with my family. It is so sweet! I am really lucky to have parents who treat me as a princess and a superior brother who is good at academic and sports. My father is a lawyer who really loves his work. He is always concentrating on his work so that he forgets to have his meals! My mother is now a housewife who used to be a businesswoman in the past. She stopped working after gave birth to me because she finds difficulty in taking care of two children who are sometimes very naughty. My brother always gets great results in academic and in sports. ...read more.

Conclusion

I met them when I went to camp last summer. Although most of them are older than me, they treat me as their younger sister. So after a summer, I gained many elder "brothers" and "sisters"! I learn a lot from them. They always took good care of me in the camp because it was very challenging. There were lots of outdoor activities which were very frightening, such as walking alone on a high beam which is 2 meters high and without anything for support. The camp was really terrific! The campers were pretty nice, too. This is me. I am a girl who is quite optimistic. I feel fear when I face problems but I will not leave it there and run away. I will solve the problem by myself or ask for help. I love my family but may be sometimes I just can't control my temper. I also love my friends and I can't live without them!
